This blog is about my thoughts and feelings concerning my own recovery from childhood sexual abuse. It will contain my current and past struggles in surviving sexual abuse as a child perpetrated by my stepfather for 14 years. I do believe there is value in sharing the details of my experience. Even though the abuse happened in secrecy and depended on secrecy, my safety is no longer a valid reason to keep silent. By telling others, it helps me to heal. It helps me find my voice. So I don’t feel so all alone.
Be warned, if you are a sexual abuse survivor this blog will most likely trigger and restimulate your emotional wounds. Remember that you have survived and I (like many other survivors) are with you in heart and soul.
